Wrote to Ellen, C.F. T. Cooper, & Linnean Society.

G. Παραμιθιόττι called, & agreed that the De Veres can come here if they will do so for 4 months.

At 1.20 ― walked out to Mrs. Woolffs, whom I found alone, with Φιζζι. Lunched & sate talking till 4.

Home: dressed. ― George not in at 6.

Went, by Καστράδες ― up to Casino ― by 7.

The De Veres ― how pretty ― even beautiful Mrs. D.V. looks dressed in a bonnet: ― but a certain “Irish” ἀπανω πατώματα1 prevails when she is presiding. ―

Hamilton appears to me a well=conditioned fellow.

Ἐτραγούδησα ἔπειτα.2

The D.Vs. do not come here, but are to live a yott.

Walked home with Major H.: nearly 12 when I got to the Παλατιον Παραμυθιοττι.3
